No, you could use the admin login script or WPKG mentioned in your other 
thread, you could use psexec to run "net time" as an administrator, or 
you could fix your NTP setup.

Samba3 isn't an AD DC there are several things that Windows can do that 
samba can't. I believe that SBS has "net time" in the default login 
script, obviously that would run into the same problem of users not 
being admins. So I guess most people probably use NTP.
